The Monkey Loooves

It was sometime in the mid 1990s and the place was New York. Kai Bröer was visiting from Berlin and stumbled across a cafe called Newsbar. They sold coffee and bagels, had an extensive selection of newspapers and magazines, and televisions mounted on the wall screening CNN. This was when cafes could be a place for people to go and read the paper. Before smartphones and iPads, wandering down to ()

The Monkey Loooves

It’s an exciting time to be in Berlin. People are arriving here from all over, and bringing with them the ideas they have about the things they are passionate about. They’re coming here, taking chances, and shaking things up! To our eyes, this is resulting in a refreshing culture emerging of small, independent, family run businesses who are not afraid to do things their own way. We wanted to take ()

This Is

Inga started working at the hotel in the summer of 2010, just a few months after we opened. It almost didn’t happen…she was a bit disillusioned with the hotel industry and was looking at other employment possibilities. But her friend heard about a position in reception at the new hotel on Warschauerstrasse and persuaded her to apply for it. Inga did, and she got the job. Not long after, Inga was with ()

Celebrating Efterklang’s new Album Piramida
Wednesday * from 7pm

The roots were first laid in 2010, when the band first saw photographs of a forgotten settlement called Piramida slowly dying on Spitsbergen, an island midway between the Norwegian mainland and the North Pole. This former Russian mining facility was once home to a thousand people, and was abandoned in January 1998, almost overnight. Casper, Mads and Rasmus visited Piramida in August 2011 with no pre-conceived ideas and not a ()

Donnerstag * 19.30

Archive, die Band mit den am häufigsten wechselnden Mitgliedern und 18 Jahren erfolgreiche Bandgeschichte auf dem Buckel hat sich einmal mehr neu erfunden. Der harte Kern um Darius Keeler und Danny Griffiths spielt für uns am Donnerstag um 19.30 ein paar Songs ihres achten Albums ‘With Us Until You’re Dead’ und wir sind sehr gespannt, wohin die Reise nach Electronic, Trip-Hop, Avantgarde und Progressive Rock diesmal geht. Es gibt lecker ()

Ob Ihr wirklich richtig steht, seht Ihr wenn das
Licht angeht.

Nein, das würde ihm nichts ausmachen, dass es noch kein fliessend Wasser auf den Zimmern gibt, keine Rezeption, kein Restaurant, also eigentlich noch kein Hotel. Doch, er würde trotzdem sehr gerne ein Wochenende bleiben. “Ja, ein Bett habt Ihr ja wohl!” Er reiste an am 19.Juni 2009 mit zwei kleinen Rollkoffern. Der allererste Gast des Michelberger Hotels. Die Klempner und Maler guckten nicht schlecht als er mit Nachthemd und Taschenlampe ()


Sarah literally travels the world. Lately she has been to Syria, Sarajevo, Istanbul, Budapest and hitchhiked from Kiew to Kenia. Now she has just come from New York to stay a week with us. Her passport is a book of one hundred pages and her bible is a novel full of flowers, postcards and beautiful garbage. She travels alone or with her sister and always takes her boyfriend that came ()

Bamboozle’s BBQ Jam
today 3pm

Talking about sausages with Eli from Soul Clap. How hot do you like your sausages? As hot as possible, I like my taste buds on fire. If it gets too hot a little mustard can cool it right down. What do you cook to impress ? The center piece of a good BBQ is always ribs. Nicely marinated steaks are cool, but juicy, fall off the bone ribs always make ()

Animal Kingdom
tonight 8pm

Tonight at 8 pm Animal Kingdom will play an Acoustic Set in the Lobby for us before heading on tour to America on Friday. We had a coffee with Geoff Lea, their Drummer.   What do all drummers have in common? I guess most drummers are pretty chilled out and enjoy hitting things. They like being in the back making lots of noise. What made you want to become a ()
